Create an itinerary including Oplotnica Gorge
Wild and untamed, Oplotnica thunders from Pohorje, although it is only a stream. When nature abounds in water, it can become a real rapid river. Slowly and steadily, the Oplotnica stream carved its way into the rock as a mighty gorge, which has been known to the locals as the Oplotnica Gorge for many years, hidden in a forest largely covered by moss, in which the water is constantly rippling.

People from Pohorje mostly adopted 3 handicrafts:

- Woodwork. Pohorje is, as we know it, a treasury of quality woods.

- Transport. Vintgar was the only timber supply route from the forests of Pohorje. It also led to Cezlak, a site of chizlakite.

- Sawmills and mills. The Oplotnica stream used to run as many as 30 sawmills and mills.

Do not miss out: The Oplotnica Gorge Educational Trail

When you miss authentic experiences, take a weekend trip to the gorge, through which also leads an interesting and easy Educational Trail Oplotnica Gorge. The trail is not demanding, and mums and dads will be looking forward to the Kneipp Active Park along the Oplotnica stream.

Knapping is more than 120 years old healing technique which has many beneficial effects on the body. Among other things, it is strongly associated with the strengthening of psychophysical immunity.

  • Nice walk in the nature. You can take a marked trail or go down to the river (but it is pretty slippery so be very careful).
  • It was nice to see in rainy day too. Thanks
